Disney sweetheart Selena Gomez really is as squeaky-clean as she sounds. During an interview set to air Friday morning on The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet, the teen star opens up about everything — fame, love, even her promise ring.

When it comes to being a role model for kids, Selena says, "I don't feel any pressure. I'm pretty confident in who I am and who my parents are... I know I'm going to do the best I possibly can."

Despite rumors that she's dating Nick Jonas, the star of Wizards of Waverly Place says she doesn't have a boyfriend at the moment, but that doesn't mean she can't have a crush on the Hollywood bad boy of the moment.

"I go on dates and have crushes and stuff," she says. "Right now, my crush is Shia LaBeouf. He is cute and a great actor."

Like many pop princesses before her, Selena preaches a pure image which she insists is legit. She wears a special ring, which she calls "A purity ring. It's a promise I made to myself."


Gomez applies the same code to the paparazzi revealing "I try to take pictures with all the kids. When it's crazy old men trying to take my picture, I'm sorry. I'm strictly with the kids."
